Why "Creating Cassie"?

Hi!  My real name is Cassandra.  Often times when I meet new people, I introduce myself and say "My name is Cassie" and I guess because of my soft spoken voice, people think I say "My name is Cathy."  I'm such a stickler for being called my proper name, so my polite response is "My full name is Cassandra, but you can call me Cassie."  So please call me Cassie...as I go by on this blog.  :)

I created my original blog site of Our Foto Friendly Family in October 2011 when my daughter was born.  I had always enjoyed writing and thought about maybe doing the blog thing for awhile and finally took the leap.  I thought it would be a really good way for me to put our family updates out there to our friends and family who may not want to be glued to Facebook or Twitter for my updates.  Since then I have come to have a love/hate relationship with blogging.  I love to write my family updates, thoughts, experiences, life lessons, etc., but I hate that I don't always have the time or allow myself the time to blog as much as I want to.  It's definitely an understandable self conflict that I deal with.  I love nothing more than to actually live my life than always finding time to blog about it.  So like I said...love/hate.

So why "Creating Cassie" you ask?  Well, after spending 1 1/2 years blogging under a "family blog" or "mommy blog" as some would call it, I no longer felt comfortable in my blogging skin under that name.  I wanted something that I could have that I would use for not only family updates and mommy thoughts, I wanted a space I could use to write anything I wanted.  I'm a 30 year old woman who loves to explore myself as an individual as well as the wonderful world wide web.  I didn't feel that I could do that under the name of "Foto Friendly Family" or "Foto Friendly Mom".  In July 2013 I created this blog, Creating Cassie, where all of my blog postings will go and I can feel more comfortable knowing that it's coming from me as a person not just me as a mom or wife just because I'm married and have children.  Yeah, it may sound weird, but that's right up my alley anyway. ;)

A little about me: I am a proud mommy and a proud wife and I strive to be the best I can be of both.  As I stated above, our daughter was born in October 2011 and we are due with her little sibling in November 2013!  I have a great love and interest for photos, animals, music, dancing, singing, cooking, traveling and writing.  I prefer bright colors to natural colors.  I love chocolate.  I dislike when people use improper grammar.  My husband and I love coffee.  I love taking pictures and videos of our daughter and watching her grow.  I love purses.  I was born in New Jersey, lived 8 years in California and currently reside in Pennsylvania.  I like wine, hate beer.  I love trying new foods.  I would love to see Europe someday.  I have seen Jamaica.  I'm obsessed with chapstick and lip gloss.  I love to sing and on my good days I have a good voice, but have horrible stage fright, except on karaoke nights when my best friend makes me sing.  I love technology and consider myself a geek.  I love smart phones and usually outgrow the one I have after a year and am ready for the 'latest and greatest'.  I love summer and fall.  I love the beach.  I love jewelry and have lots of it but usually only wear the same pair of earrings, one of two necklaces, and my wedding rings...unless I'm going out (which is very rare).  I love to laugh!

Much more to tell, but I figured I've already lost you by now.  I enjoy having a website for my thoughts and our family updates and I'm also enjoying meeting new bloggers.  I'm sure our kids will enjoy it later on in life too!
